    Hi guys,

    I need to get the link to the PDF of the submitted data in the download excel file.

    Normally in the excel I get only the link to the uploaded files; would it be possible to get also the link to the PDF of the completed form with all the submitted data?

    I mean, the same link I can get by email, (..."Recipients can get a PDF attachment of submitted form data) .. would it be possibile to get it also in the excel file, so I could access the PDF directly form the excel?

    Or alternatively; i would love to have available in the excel the link to the form to view all the submitted data (see screenshot)

    thank you

    Do you want the PDF submission document to be available as a link in the submissions downloaded as an Excel file? If yes, I'm afraid that will not be possible, since the PDF copy itself is the submission data which is again contained in the Excel file. If this is not what you were referring to, kindly provide us more information.

    I would love to have available in the excel the link to the form to view all the submitted data.

    You can add a link to your submission sheet in the excel file, but it won't appear automatically - https://www.jotform.com/sheets/xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

    May we know the reason why you would want the PDF submission to be available as a link inside the Excel submission file? The reason for asking is that the Excel and the PDF files themselves contain the submission data. Also, this could help us in checking with our backend team if any such feature can be implemented.
